One Star Leather Goods Large Pen Sleeve in Forest Green with Brown StitchingNock Co “The Lookout” Prototype in Midnight/FoliageNotes:I’ve cut down a lot on my number of inked up pens. I used to have anywhere from 8-10 loaded up at a time, but after graduating from school, my practical usage has gone down a bit. I usually have one or two pens inked up with review inks, and the rest are usually filled with my go-to inks. I’m really loving my new Nakaya, and the Diamine Oxblood matches the pen perfectly. The Field Notes is on it’s last few pages, and I’m looking forward to starting a new one up soon.
Thanks a bunch for participating Ed, the Nock Co prototype looks great! Be sure to check out his blog at EdJelley.com as his blog is full of great handwritten reviews and some awesome photography on a variety of stationery.
On my side of the world, school is officially in high speed mode, so I’ve been going through paper at a rate that is probably spelling an early doom for a lot of forests. On the bright side, it means I am able to cycle through a lot of ink! This month brought a new pen, the Platinum Century 3776 in EF, to my humble collection and has taken up a role as a solid test/exam writing pen. I finally managed to crack open the Noodler’s #41 Brown that has been sitting in my desk drawer since the winter break started. It’s a hard starter, but shades nicely in the 1.1mm stub.
